Automatic Smart Folders

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

In Thunderbird, I frequently want to see a list of messages I’ve sent or received from a particular person. For people I talk with regularly, I can do this with a manually set-up smart folder:

  • Match any of the following
    • From contains
    • To or cc contains

But really, I don’t want to set these up manually. I just want an easy context menu item to see all the messages from/to a particular person. I searched but couldn’t find what I wanted.

Also, why can’t smart folders/saves searches in Thunderbird show a threaded view?
